Gus Rich The story behind the artist is almost as special as his album... How a 16 year old lad from Glasgow can produce such an unbelievable album & create such beautiful 80's synth tracks with so much feeling & care when he was born around the year 2000 is hard to believe! Special album & special artist... Must have for any SynthWave collection. Long Island is as close to perfection as I've heard yet. Amazing. Favorite track: Long Island (feat. Kaye Kiernan).

Ezzy Betts Absinth3 always brings a diverse palette of sounds and a cadre of elite female artists to his round table. Once again this album proves that age has no limit, all you need is skill and dedication. Brilliant concepts and interesting directions with some of the lyrics. This album is one of the most authentic in the synthwave scene thus far. I can only imagine what this young talent will cook up next in the kitchen! Favorite track: Firewall (feat. Lisa Marie Perkins).

Track Name: Firewall (feat. Lisa Marie Perkins)
She's a devil
She's running down a dream killing one by one
Do you remember
She's got a 50 cal so you better run

She's a liar
She'd tell you that she loved you but it wasn't so
And all the hatred
It all built up inside her and she's letting it go
======================================================
VERSE 2

You better run
You better hide
Cause she's gonna come and find you and take you for a ride

You better stop
You better think
There's no more time to run cause she's on the brink

No turning down
Don't turn around
Just find somewhere to hide and don't make a sound

She's coming in
You can't win
Cause when she gets you in the night you wont believe your eyes
=====================================================
CHORUS

Firewall
She wont give in tonight
You better run or you will feel the

Firewall
She wont give up the fight
You better hide or you will get the

Firewall
Empress of the Night
You better watch or you will see the

Firewall
Her lights are shining bright
Hunt you down and you will not see

Her (Long Note Held)

You will not see her
======================================================
VERSE 3

Just find somewhere to hide and don't make a sound

She's coming in
You can't win
Cause when she gets you in the night you wont believe your eyes

Track Name: Trust Is A Curious Word (feat. Chelsea Owen)
I was lost
I didn't know where to find you
But I did know where to go

You were gone
Left without a reason
Left the keys beside the door

Do you remember
When you took me by the hand
And you said you wouldn't go

But I knew
That you were fooling around girl
And there was nothing I could do

CHORUS
======================================================
Thank you
for setting me free
You should have done that long ago

Thank you
for leaving me be
You are now my shadow
====================================================
VERSE 2

I was right
You never really loved me
But I was just a fool

He was hiding
Behind the glass screen
How could you be so cruel

Oooh (Improvised Fills)
=====================================================
CHORUS

Thank you
for setting me free
You should have done that long ago

Thank you
for leaving me be
You are now my shadow

Thank you
